Jeremy Peters: Trump Supporters Don’t Expect to See a Wall Across the Southern Border

‘All it takes is for Trump to go down to the southern border, lay that cornerstone and show there’s progress made on that and other fronts on border security and his supporters will be fine with it’

EXCERPT:

PETERS: "I think a lot of fights get pushed further on down the road, especially the extraordinarily divisive one over what to do with funding Planned Parenthood. That rolls over into the health care debate that we’re about to see kick off this week. This was always a bit of an anti-climax. It looked that way for the last week or so that the government probably wasn’t going to shut down. It would have been embarrassing for President Trump to have a government shutdown basically right dead on his 100-day mark anniversary. So they were always going to work something out. There still is an awful lot of money in here for border security. It may not be specifically for a wall but Donald Trump will have more border agents at the border and he’ll be able to — I think really all it takes is for Trump to go down to the southern border, lay that cornerstone and show that there’s progress being made on that and on other fronts on border security and really his supporters will be fine with it. They don’t expect to see a wall across the entire southern border."
